in this election. mitt romney is not against this law, right? he said -- he said he's neither for it nor against it so we can assume he's for it, right? >> he's not said anything. his staffer told the reporter "we'll get back to you" and so far they have not got back to us. >> stephen: well, maybe he's just trying to keep a great surprise. (laughter) like when he gets into office he'll sign a law giving you twice the pay. >> i don't think so. >> stephen: what if women just hold out and just see what's behind door number mitt. (laughter) >> i wouldn't advise that. >> stephen: are you presently working? >> no. >> stephen: will no one hire you because you're afraid you'll sue them? >> you got it. (cheers and applause) >> stephen: lilly ledbetter. the book is
not elect an african-american anden that president obama came along. doesn't seem like mitt romney's mormonisms not playing a bigger role. what do you think of that? >> it played a lesser role in the general election than the primary election. it was quite an issue when he was running against newt gingrich and when there was white supported voters. as he became the presumptive nominee, we have seen white evangelical supporter support jump into line and consistent with what they have supported, the candidates the last election. john mccain and george w. bush, three quarters of the likely boarders are going to support mitt romney in this election. >> what are catholics supposed to do this time around? to buy contraceptives for employees of the church and you turn around. the other side of cathol simp promotes the fact of giving to the poor and a lot of the democratic values? >> right. one of the things that you mentioned is that we have two vice presidential candidates who were both catholic and they both represent varying different emphasis of the catholic church in their own way. o
, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather re
. >> with four days until an election, he has a real chance of winning, it's time to consider what mitt romney, the president, would do. >> washington is broken. i know what it takes to get this country back and we'll work with good democrats and good republicans to do that. [applause] america has always been basically a center right country. i don't think that's changed much, and i don't think you'll see mr. romney drag it radically to the right. that's not really him. >> we don't know who the real mitt romney is. who he is seems to depend upon who he's talking to, which constituency he aims to please. >> in these days before the election and after sandy, washington is a pretty gloomy place, quite why anyone would want to run this place is a bit of a mystery. but if mr. romney does win it will be precisely because he has capitalized on america's uncharacteristically pessimistic mood, promising a sunnier vision of the future, fueled by conservative faith in lower taxes and less regulation. >> those people in this country who want real change from day one are going to vote for paul ryan and mys
this election will be won. >>> the final push has president obama and governor romney barnstorming seven critical swing states across the country. in the hunt for 270 electoral votes. the argument -- >> the unemployment rate is falling. manufacturing is coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are hum again. >> the passion -- >> this is an election about big things, about big choices. >> and the ground game. the critical effort to deliver key voting groups to the polls. this morning, we hear about it all from key figures on the ground in these states. all-important ohio -- can romnen win the white house without it? we're ask the state's republican governor, john kasich. and also joining us, wisconsin's republican governor, scott walker and colorado's democratic governor, john hickenlooper. analysis on what will tip the scales in this historically tight presidential race. from our roundtable, from msnbc, rachel maddow. "new york times" columnist, david brooks. "washington post" columnist, ej dionne. former ceo of hewlett-packard, now vice chair of the national republican senatorial c
to election day, governor romney resumed a full campaign schedule today. he's in florida right now. about to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaig
romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/nixon election, i think we would not have had th
in the past. i would predict that if governor romney is elected president, he would support, nominate justices who would be more likely to overturn roe v. wade than would barack obama. i think that it is clear, however, that he would not do anything to outlaw abortion in cases of rape, incest or life of the mother being endangered. i think we know that from the exchanges to date. and so you can say he's had more positions across time, and his position -- you can mark different points in the calendar across his life. >> i do think that the public, by and large, perceives the fact that he has made more 180 degree turns than a whirling dervish. i read this comment online at "the washington post," a reader who said that, "romney has thrown limbaugh, rick perry, allen west and all the other tea party people under a freight train by essentially saying he would govern as president obama governs." that's what he, in effect, he said this past last debate. what about that? >> why would anyone believe that? yes, he said that and yes he did it to convey the impression that the old mitt romney from the pri
different ideas of what this elect tort is going to look like. gwen: let's go gown to ohio where mitt romney is tonight as we -- let's go down to ohio where mitt romney's speaking. is it true that ohio is what all of this turns on? >> i would say yes. right. but we have been surprised so many times in elections. and it was in 2004, i remember i was in columbus, ohio in 2004. and, you know, i guess i'd have to predict that the president will win it for the very reasons amy was saying. gwen: ooh, ooh. that's scary. you made a prediction. i've got it on tape. i can roll it back. i wonder if it plays into that demographic divide. is it the example of what we're talking about? >> well, it's actually different -- >> why? >> well, the white vote falls differently in the state of ohio than it does in other places. blue collar whites -- >> the auto bailout. >> the auto bailout, the fact that mitt romney opposed to auto bailout and also his characteristics as a very wealthy financial executive who has been pounded by democratic adds in a concentrated way, that sort of changed the chemistry of that sta
it said. which romney are voters going to get. which romney would they elect, the rather liberal one who ran for the senate in 1994, the pragmatic governor? the sharply conservative candidate of this year's gop primaries, the reborn moderate of recent weeks. all politicians change positions over time but romney's frequent changes raise questions about his core principles and make the lack of details all the more troubling. they make you wonder if he would stand up to the more extreme elements of his own party. especially the house republicans who undercut ohioan john boehner's attempt to get a debt deal and negotiate a deficit. how do you respond to that, governor? >> look at his record. a guy created jobs, he's a job creator. we need that. jobs are the greatest moral issue in american today, when people are working, families are stronger and children are better off. number one. number two, he was governor from massachusetts, they went from deficits to surpluses, from job loss to job creation. then you look at the olympics where he was a pure leader. you look at the history and it tells
. election day is just a year away and pundits. dick morris says romney will win in a landslide. new york times poll and they are betting on bam, short for barack. what about the electoral popular vote split? it could happen. that is what my pectoral captain hard shell and he is never wrong except for vietnam. if someone could make sense of it all someone like joe biden. >> there is never been a day in the last four years i've been proud to be his vice president. not one single day. not one single day. >> greg: he is national treasure and mitt romney is making a final push in swing states. and they released a tv ad that will get heavy play in ohio. day can a look. >> i'm mitt romney and aapprove this message. >> greg: as an entertainment reporter all you care about is bradley cooper's dating habits. are you aware of an election going on. i want your bre diction. who do you think who is going to win next year? >> i'm counting down the 355 days. i can't answer your question. i am a world-renowned journalist and i strongly believe journalists should not share who they are voting for. i don't
of free and fair elections, but the romney campaign doesn't want voters to know they're there. gee, i wonder why. joining me now is scott who broke the story for think progress and joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host from sirius/xm the power. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> scott, what can you tell us about your reporting? anything from the campaign? >> think progress obtained this document that is being used in romney poll watcher trainings around the state. we identified as many as 17 such trainings that occurred in the last month. not only are they being instrucked to sign in at the polls as a concerned citizen rather than mentioned -- or disclose any affiliation with the romney campaign or the republican party, they're also being given highly misleading and sometimes downright false information. for instance, they're told on one of the pages that -- given a list of ineligible voters. one of those is anybody who's ever committed a felony in the state. that's patently not true. wisconsin law allows for anybody with a felony, once t
, it's going to be very close election, probably slight edge with governor romney. >> sean: independents, we keep looking at these numbers. that is grouch by seven or eight points, president obama won -- there is a 16-point swing in many of these polls. is that the difference? >> it is the difference. if you go to some of the battleground states, independents by definition are going to pick the winner of that state. that is huge. i think the other thing that not talked about enough, generation gap. a whole lot of attention about the young voters. that are going to vote for president obama but don't know how many will show up. seniors are leaning toward governor romney and enthusiasm is way up compared to 2008. >> sean: if you look at the independents and add the intensity and you add new republican voters you have a formula for success, at least for governor romney. now, we have to go state by state. this is an electoral college vote. do you see a scenario in which romney would win a popular voted and lose the electoral college? >> it is possible. i think for that to happen
's direction. >> essentially state. it's hard for romney to win the election without winning virginia. >> he is up by two and four in theirs, it's leaning toward romney? >> it's going in romney's direction. it's very close. again --, ohio is a place where i think more than anyplace else they want the election over. they can't even watch tv. they are squeezed between ads. nobody is changing their mind. there is a tremendous get out to voted effort. i don't know who is going to win ohio. we show romney up by two. we have shown obama up in five polls, very close. >> sean: you are the only ones that have him up? >> most of the polls show it close. i think this is going to be a state that is going to be all about the turnout on election day. >> gregg:. >> sean: according to early voting, obama is not doing that well and romney is doing better. you wrote a column and wisconsin may be the new ohio. no republican has gotten to the white house except through ohio. if romney was to lose ohio but if he wins the other three states fh he wins. >> it is possible. that makes wisconsin a divisive state. if

mitt romney elected president. neither of which is true. but why is john sununu a surrogate for the romney campaign when he says such outlandish you know what? why? >> i don't know why they would use him at this stage of the game, frankly. because he is somebody that does not have much of a filter. and we are at a stage of the campaign where, listen, mitt romney could win. he's actually doing very well. >> absolutely. but john sununu is not helping the case. >> we don't need any unforced errors. and i think that when you put john sununu out there, he is a guy who says what he thinks. sometimes it comes out wrong. he's got no filters. i would say, get him off tv between now and november 6th. >> go ahead, lz. >> we know why he's there. he's there because he speaks to a certain -- a number of people within the romney base. he gets them fired up. it's the same reason why bill maher says the things he says. it fires up a particular part of their base. john sununu is a racist. i'm just going to call it. i'm just going to say it. >> i was not responding to you when you said john su

examiner michael moran. >> good to be with you. >> this election may come down to ohio. what does romney have to do to win the state. >> he has to win over a lot of afluent voters necessary suburbian areas that haven't voted republican in the last couple of presidential election. areas with which republicans used to win but trended democratic over the last 20 years. on the cultural issues and he has to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in other states. there are different ohios and he has to gain in different places on different issues and appeals. >> michael you looked deeper in ohio and picked out one county that may be the key to the state of ohio. why and which county. franklin county includes the state capt capt of -- capital of columbus. franklin was a republi
be altering the presidential campaign which is one week to election day, president obama and governor romney canceled rallies and stump speeches on monday and tuesday. yesterday, president obama spoke from the white house briefing room. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election, i am worried about the impact on families and worried about the impact on our first responders, i am worried about the impact on our economy. and on transportation. you know, the election will take care of itself next week. >> and here is what governor romney said. >> on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. >> and our hearts and our prayers go to them as we think about how tough it is going to be there. i don't think there has been a hurricane in ohio in a long time. but there have been some hurricanes that have caused a lot of damage across this country and hurt a lot of families and their families are in harm's ways that will be hurt either in their possessions or perhaps even something more severe. >> we have faced these kind of challeng
romney, this election season, there are now 47 million people on food stamps. that's an increase of 14.7 million people or 46% since obama took office, and those people buy the smaller units at dollar general. say what you want about the president, the increase in food stamps is a huge tail wind for dollar general. and it's natural they would have some major stock-up business ahead of this storm. however, hurricane sandy is just icing on the cake for dollar general. i can't do any trades because they're too flawed but this investment, i like. i would be telling you to make this investment without the food stamp stock-up business from the storm. why am i such a big fan of this one? dollar general is the best of the dollar steers. best management, it's been able to deliver consistent double-digit earnings growth for the last several years. second, there's been trouble in the dollar store space recently. i think this industry is still a terrific fit for the times we're in. it ain't no boom here. an environment of high unemployment, slow wage growth, expensive gas prices, you better believ
states where this election will be won. the final push has president obama and governor romney fire storming seven critical states across the country in the hunt for 270 electoral votes. is argument -- >> unemployment is falling. manufacturing is coming back. >> the passion. this is an election about big things. about big choices. >> and the ground game. the critical effort to deliver key voting groups to the polls. this morning, we hear about it all from key figures on the ground. all important ohio. can romney win the white house without it? we'll ask the state republican governor, john casic. wisconsin governor scott walker and colorado's democratic governor, john. analysis on what will tip the scales in this tight presidential race. from the round table, from msnbc, rachel maddow, new york times columnist david brooks, washington post columnist, former ceo of hewlett packard, carly. our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good morning on this sunday. as if it wasn't enough to have this
hampshire is mitt romney's final stop before election day. director of the marist poll joins me now. lee, let's start with iowa, as you might be already aware of. the romney campaign disputes the size of the lead that we have for the president there. they believe this race is a dead heat. you look inside these numbers, what can you tell me about what is giving the president what it appears to be a solid lead, according to our survey? >> several things. mitt romney's favorable, unfavorable is still upside down in iowa, not in new hampshire, not in wisconsin. iowa is maintaining that pattern that we've seen a lot this fall. it hasn't moved for him. iowa is a huge early voting state and i think if the story of this election ends up being the re-election if it does of president obama, it's going to be all about the early voting and the wider his lead, the wider the state -- the more early voting. >> let me throw up a stat from our iowa poll for folks. among those who say they have voted or will vote early, and mitt romney leads 55/35. so, you know, that is -- that points to the advantage the
the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we think we have a good shot at virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio, florida, pennsylvania, virginia, new hampshire, new mexico and thef today in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he seemed quite confident that they were going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win in all those states. and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in these last four
for governor romney. >> there aren't enough white men in this country to elect a president. i'm sorry, fellas. it's the truth. and the barack obama electorate is blacker and browner and it's women and it's far more diverse, like the country actually is. >> even republican senator lindsey graham said something to the effect of we're not turning out enough angry old white guys. the romney campaign made the bet that they had enough of those guys on their side if they just did stuff like what rudy giuliani did, they would win. they were wrong. >>> crystal ball, karen finney, jonathan, stay with us. >>> a programming note, tomorrow, vice president joe biden sits down with chris matthews for a special preelection edition of "hard ball" tomorrow night at 7:00. >>> next, it's been three weeks since mitt took a question from a reporter. when we come back, you will see why. stay with us. >> refusing to answer details about your policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. we've heard that from politicians before. or that printing in color had to cost a fortune. nobody said an all-in
will happen if mitt romney is elected. now, he was in connecticut campaigning for chris murphy running for senate against linda mcmahon in a hotly contested race there. here is what clinton actually said on sunday, quote, we're coming down to the 11th hour, we're facing a violent storm. it's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the right decision in this election. so, you know, actually saying, bringing on romney as president of the united states will be more devastating than the full wrath of mother nature. >> yeah, but clinton can do that, he can be the attack dog and pit bull and do those things, but romney and obama can't say those things. >> i agree. clinton is going to be who he is. joe biden can't go out there and do it, he's the acting, now current vice-president, but bill clinton can play the fear game. this problem is the institutional left. they are looking at an election swinging tornadwards romney. charles: bill clinton is considered. >> considered a moderate. he only did what he had to do in office, to stay in office. 's he a political animal and his
. >> stephanie: wow. >> in fairness if mitt romney were elected he would be trumpeting one specific sector too, but the female body inspectors would be all up in your grill trying to determine if you are pregnant. >> stephanie: the president is up, what five karl -- >> two of three polls that came out yesterday, he is up five and the other one he is up three. and that's why you see mitt romney going into pennsylvania minnesota, and michigan. if he was secure in his thinking he could make it to 270, we would be in ohio -- >> stephanie: the other thing i look sat my yahoo thing, and the president was at 303 electoral, romney was at 100-something. >> now there is a man fight between joe scarborough and nate silver. >> stephanie: yes. kids go to meeting, more and more people are leaving their office. if you have the go to my pc app. go to my pc, it is the number one tool for remote access. >> yes. >> stephanie: you are the number one tool on the "stephanie miller show." >> i'm reminded of that many many times. >> stephanie: you can work from anywhere, even on the go. try go to m
to work right new. because of this election, if we see romney elected, we'll see oil prices drop. you'll see energy prices drop. that might be a buying opportunity at that point. other than that, i really believe we have to just take a look and see attitude right now. >> well, one of our guests, a regular on this program, had a great idea. he said to me, maybe for one month the fed instead of putting that $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities buying, put that on hold and send it to some of the ravaged areas like staten island, like new jersey. >> i love it. i absolutely love that idea. >> i do too. >> then the fed's crossing the line into fiscal policy and out of the realm of monetary policy. >> where are we going to get it? >> fema responds rather adroitly to -- katrina notwithstanding, to these disasters. i suspect they're going to be quite responsive right now for those who have been displaced, who have lost family members, who don't have homes. i think there will be a rapid response from the federal government. >> i'm just saying, we could use that money in other areas right n
why isn't it being used in the bay area? >>> i'm tired. i'm tired of obama and mitt romney. >> why the presidential election made this four-year- old girl cry. >>> and what wearing too much makeup really does to a woman and we're not just talking about her skin. evidence that it can make you age faster. it's the only broadcast radar in america the national weather service relies on. how much i >>> for years now, we have told you about the rash of metal thefts and how much that ends up costing bay area cities and utilities. but there is dna-like technology that can catch a medal thief red-handed. cbs 5 reporter elizabeth cook shows us how it works and asks the question, why isn't anyone using it here? >> reporter: brazen thieves crashed a truck through a fence to get to a spool of copper wire in this pg&e yard. >> we had almost 5.2 million in copper theft over the last six years. >> reporter: in vallejo, criminals strip wiring from the electrical grid. >> over the last 18 months, we've had over 97 different locations where thieves have taken the electrical cables that power our stre
election day mitt romney has been forced to suspend his campaign. that's why he's scrapped his victory rally in kettering, ohio, and instead appeared at a completely different, the same, spot with the same people and called it a storm relief rally. which is so comforting for all those living on ohio's hard-hit atlantic coast. mitt romney understands that disaster relief belongs only on the state level. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. >> who better to respond to what's going on inside its own borders than the state whose infrastructure has just been swept out to sea? >> as we talked about earlier, it's the romney etch-a-sketch fema edition. >>> next, iowa congressman steve king. there's a piece of work. seems to be on a never ending campaign to outdo his own history of crazy comments. from the republican congressman who thinks president obama's birth certificate may have been telegramed to him from kenya, we have comments on federal aid for victims of sandy. here is what he said.

ryan to do once he and mitt romney lose the election next week. i sort of can't believe it didn't get more attention yesterday afternoon. it is also the purest and most direct rebuttal of that campaign's own rather heroic efforts to project some super human confidence about how much they think they are going to win on tuesday. joining us is a man who is in the business of knowing who is going to win, nate silver, for "the new york times." he's the who author of "the signal and the the noise." thank you for being here. >> thank you, rachel. >> a lot of headlines say that since mitt romney is going to pennsylvania, that must mean that pennsylvania is in play. from the numbers, do you believe pennsylvania is in play? >> you had the list of 24 polls and none had romney ahead. some were done that had romney up a couple points there, but no public pollster has had him with a lead all year. it's not just that obama is up there, but it's a state where it's been stable and consistent in the polling. i think it might be more in play because i don't think they are conceding ohio. they need a bet

. although with mitt romney and paul ryan got elected they would break the promise is since just under 55. we will have a chance to break promises to feel like it will be great. but, the golden age when we think about it it really was the result of the great depression and world war ii. it was the result of people feeling as though the tragedy created an incentive to create a big middle class that we didn't want communism and fascism and the way to prevent that was to get more and more american people a stake in society. and let them be less susceptible to those sort of isms and extremisms. so we used the government to build that great middle class. we started with of the new deal and making it easier to unionize. the g.i. bill actually let people buy houses and go to college. it wasn't just veterans who could go to college. we were building public universities. the federal government was ensuring the hall of mortgages for people who maybe could have previously afforded them. and we built the roads out to the great so nervous that some of us had our golden age. the problem with that time peri
